Notes to Remember as You Fast

Sugar-Free mints and sugarless gum help your breath stay fresh. The Daniel Fast is a fast from ALL meats such as beef, chicken, pork, veal, lamb, etc. Beans are an excellent source of protein! NO leisure TV these 21 days with the exception of Christian broadcasting, teaching videos, DVDs and the news (no CNN or MSNBC, all day please). Use this time to read the WORD and listen to worship music or teaching tapes or CDs. Attend as many corporate gatherings as possible and stay connected to your Life Group. Assembling with the saints is added strength. You many experience some irritability during this time, because your body is craving various food substances its used to. Ask God to constantly keep your attitude in check. You may be tempted in different areas, but remember to read the Scripture(s) listed on this sheet in addition to your regular Bible reading. Meditating on the daily Scriptures will provide revelation, insight, and strength to endure. Those with a medical condition related to eating or under the treatment of a physician must consult their doctor. Children will have special needs that must be considered. Under these conditions, find some sacrifice in the area of food that can be made without endangering health. Those who are diabetics or experiencing other medical problems, please consult your physician concerning this fast.

Yo u r g o a l i n f a s t i n g i s t o b e c o m e c l o s e r t o God by voluntarily denying the demands of your flesh. Determine to increase your prayer life during this time and study the Scriptures w i t h a n e w l e v e l o f f o c u s a n d i n t e n s i t y. Prayer and fasting are a part of the walk of humility that brings you into Christ-likeness. Fasting changes you and positions you to receive from God. 2013 is full of new o p p o r t u n i t i e s f o r y o u a n d f o r t h i s m i n i s t r y. Keeping an edge and preventing yourself from becoming dull is of utmost importance.

The Daniel Fast is recognized as an effective means to receive breakthrough in our spiritual walk. The Daniel Fast requires a spiritual commitment to God. Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself (Daniel 1:8). Fasting not only offers spiritual benefits but health benefits as well. Fasting is a sacrifice that exhibits a desire to follow the Will of God. It is a voluntary step of humility, which demonstrates we are serious about seeking the heart of God and His Way of doing things. In fasting we die to our self-will and refuse to accommodate the desires of the flesh in order to see the Will of God accomplished. It is our desire as a corporate body to fulfill Gods Will in 2013. A breakthrough for a greater anointing and a fresh and genuine encounter with Christ Jesus awaits as we set our hearts to seek the Lord through prayer and fasting. Daniel 9:3 So I gave my attention to the Lord God to seek [Him by] prayer and supplications, with fasting...
